Barwick: Claims other side in politics has no morals

Posted

I have been asked why liberals seem to have an advantage over conservatives when it comes to politics. Liberals seem to do whatever they please even if it is illogical. For example, they are the party of identity politics, which divides us into competing factions, but they preach unity. Liberals judge us by the color of our skin (White privilege) but conservatives are the racists. Sounds a bit contradictory, but that’s because the rules are different for liberals. Let me explain.

Most conservatives are guided by a set of universal values given to them by their creator not by government. For conservatives, the end means nothing if you have to give up your value system to obtain it. We tend to avoid burning down our community to gain acceptance of our values.

The opposite is true for liberals. They believe government can save us. It is their religion and they make up the rules to fit the circumstances. Rules are made to be broken.

If they want the Black vote, they buy it with the promise of reparations, which is demeaning and condescending. If they want the Black and Latino vote, they change the voting laws that require voter ID because they believe Blacks and Latinos can’t get driver’s licenses or Social Security numbers. If they want cleaner air, they close down an EPA-approved oil pipeline, destroying jobs and families. If they want to increase their voter base, they open our southern border even if it hurts low-income workers and spreads COVID-19.

If they want the educators’ vote, they support the closing of schools, with no scientific evidence, and let our kids be educationally abused by most teachers, administrators and school boards. If they want the support of Big Tech, they support their censorship of a former president and trample on free speech by removing what they deem “misinformation.” These are destructive and stupid things but not to worry.

Heaven on earth will make it worthwhile.

This kind of behavior makes liberals (Democratic Party leadership) extremely dangerous. They can do whatever they please under guise of compassion. They pretend to be something they’re not.

Watch them carefully and you will see a pattern. They are emotionally out of control. They call you names and berate you if you oppose them. If you use facts to counter their behavior, you must be racist, homophobic and uncaring.

They are morally superior and if you disagree, you are the enemy. Their end is perfection.

The means to that end are not relevant, and that is very scary.
